Beauty Treats Indonesia July Box

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ I’m back with another unboxing of the “number one beauty box in Indonesia”. Thankfully, they arrive just a week late this month. You know the saying, better late than never, right? I love how the customer service thought of me as a psychic that knows everything that is happening in this world, including the reason behind the delay of this month’s box. Maybe if I focus enough I can find a way to end world hunger as well. Oh, maybe I can even find the meaning of life while I’m at it! Open-mouthed smile

3M Nexcare Acne Cover Review

"Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review purposes in exchange for my honest opinion after trying it out. " Complete disclosure here
Hello, lovelies~ Have you ever had that one annoying acne on your face that disturbs your day or event that is coming up within the week? I’ve always experienced it, especially when there is an event coming up. It’s like my acne decides to join in the fun and popped up a day before the event, grrrr. 3M came up with a new product that claims to help get rid of acne within 8 hours and they were kind enough to send me their new acne cover patch to try out.

Beauty Tips and Tricks

Fresh Lips!

Friday, July 19, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ I rarely do tutorial posts on my blog, but occasionally I like to share a few makeup tips that I find helpful to my daily routine. One of the things I need to stay on my face while I’m out of the house is my lip color. Lately, I’ve been using this combination for a longer lasting lip color. However, it does require reapplication after a few hours, so it’s not a one time thing.

My Skin’s New Best Friends from Vaseline

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ Are you one of those people who regularly uses body lotion twice a day, both during the day and night time? I know I am, even though sometimes on those really tiring nights, I forget to apply, hehehe. If you are one of those regular body lotion user, kudos to you for taking care of your skin. To those who haven’t gotten into the routine of applying body lotion, I’m going to tell you why it is important to do so.

Vaseline PercentageI know that it takes quite some time to evenly apply body lotion all over your body, especially if you’re just tired or in a rush and don’t really have time to evenly spread it all over your body. However, do you know that applying body lotion does more than just keeping the skin moist? I got a chance to find out more about the importance of applying body lotion to the skin during the new product launch from Vaseline a few weeks ago.

I’m sure most of you are already familiar with Vaseline and their innovative products, especially body lotions. Last month, Vaseline released two new products in their Healthy White range, namely Vaseline Insta Fair and Vaseline Night Repair. The event was held in a restaurant at Kuningan and the team from Fashionese Daily invited the me to dinner to talk about Vaseline’s new products. Food and new Vaseline products? Sounds good to me! ^_^

Hello, lovelies~ It’s the middle of the month, which means my Lolabox has arrived safe and sound at my house this July. Glad to see that I received my box on time because they ship every month on the 15th. I tend to receive my packets a day after it was shipped if it is from Jakarta. Thanks to the JNE agent near my house, really. Good job!

It is a crème colored box this month, along with a white bow that wraps the content neatly together inside the box. It also has a green tissue paper to protect the products inside.

Hello, lovelies~ I hope everyone is well this Monday. It’s the start of the week, but just remember to think happy thoughts until the next weekend comes along, lol. Well, I wanted to review a drugstore item today and I’m sure that everyone in Indonesia is already familiar with Acnes UV Tint. I bought this at Giant Hypermart a few weeks back when I was getting my tea. I have heard many raves from those that have used it, especially on oily and acne prone skin. I’ve tried it on myself for three weeks, give or take, and here is what I think about it.

DOAPJ DIY: Tinted Lip balm

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ I was looking through my drafts today and found one that I missed doing because I was busy all month last May. I haven’t really done DIYs for a while, so I thought this post is perfect to restart it all over again. Let’s just start with simple things like a tinted lip balm that you can make yourself.

The process of tinting of giving a sheer color to the lip balm is very easy. All you have to do is mix the lip balm with the color you wanted.

Hello, lovelies~ A few weeks ago, I attended the beauty blogger event from Garnier, announcing the launch of their newest BB cream. As I’m writing this now, I’m sure that most of you can already find the products on supermarket shelves waiting to be bought, lol. After using it for about two weeks, here is what I think about it.

Suncare 101: UVA and UVB Rays

Friday, July 05, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ It’s time for another post with yours truly about skincare and some other stuff that is kinda related to it. lol. I’ve seen some confusion about the UV rays that are present and what it does to our skin. To give you a clearer picture on which is which, here’s a cheat sheet on UVA and UVB.

Before understanding both UVA and UVB rays, let’s take a look at this picture below. This explained the difference of levisiblelightuvdiagramngths that both rays can go. UVA has the longest wavelength  at 400 –320 nm, while UVB has a shorter wavelength at 320 – 290 nm. Due to this range of wavelengths, it is impossible to see the UV light with your naked eye.

However, both can still penetrate the atmosphere and cause several skin conditions such as early signs of aging, sun spots and even skin cancer.

The Face Shop Lovely me:ex Design My Eyebrow (Auto) in Gray Brown Review

Thursday, July 04, 2013

Hello, lovelies~ I am quite a late bloomer when it comes to using eyebrow products. Maybe because I never really cared about it until I realized that they can make a huge difference to my overall look. With that said, I began exploring eyebrow products, particularly one that has gray shades. I don’t like my eyebrows looking brown, like in your face brown, so I chose this one to try out from The Face Shop.

Hello, lovelies~ I hope you're all well. Today, I wanted to review a lip product that I have tried out a few months ago when I went to Singapore.

Hello, lovelies~ I have been debating on posting this product because every time I want to write about this, I get the feeling that no one is going to be interested over a bottle of mineral water in a spray can. However, I decided on writing this post today because Sharon requested it, so here you go~
